Video: Heavy Rain... if its characters were posh Brits

A very British family tragedy

Hello and welcome to the second in a new video regular here on GamesRadar. We like to call it 'The Posh British Version'. It's where the GamesRadar UK team take well-known scenes from your favourite games and imagine what they'd sound like if all the characters were over-the-top, posh, British aristocrats. Sounds odd--trust us, it just works... incredibly well.

In this video we take the tragic opening scene from Heavy Rain and reimagine it as an ordinary, family visit to the local shopping centre. Find out how a simple trip to buy a polo mallet and some snuff turns into a frightful outing for all concerned. Oh, and keep watching at the end for an actually terrifying Easter Egg...

Want more? We also did a rather amusing British Version of The Last of Us.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Andy has been writing about games since 1999, when he nagged the Editors of his University newspaper so much they let him start a brand-new video games section. After that he worked in print mags for over 10 years before switching to the murky world of online editing, when he became Executive Editor on GamesRadar. Now he uses his ill-gotten power and influence to write endless, beard-stroking think-pieces on Destiny and Game of Thrones. Spoil the latest episode of the show, and he will cut you.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

The longest-serving GR+ staffer, I was here when all this was just fields. I'm currently Reviews Editor but still find time to speedrun Sonic levels and make daft Photoshop articles.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Long-time GR+ writer Dave has been gaming with immense dedication ever since he failed dismally at some '80s arcade racer on a childhood day at the seaside (due to being too small to reach the controls without help). These days he's an enigmatic blend of beard-stroking narrative discussion and hard-hitting Psycho Crushers.
